Visiting Fulbright scholar Jimmy O’Brien-Moran presents a lecture on the life and music of Séamus Ennis (1919–1982), who collected and recorded traditional music of England, Scotland, and Ireland for the Irish Folklore Commission and the BBC. Ennis was also an accomplished performer of Irish music—he was known as the “god of uilleann pipes”—and after leaving his position at the BBC, he performed in Ireland and the United States. Moran discusses and sings some of the music that Ennis discovered.
